It's never too late to believe in fairy tales … Eloise Blake has been fascinated by Prospect House, the shadowy romantic Gothic house opposite, ever since she moved to the village of Hookfield. When its new owner turns out to be best-selling crime author, Ross Farrell, whose work is grounded in gritty reality rather than happy endings, Eloise is determined to concentrate on her tapestry design business and her rescue dog, Gracie.

But is he the Prince Charming she thought didn't exist…or is he a beast in disguise?

There is a special place on the southeastern shores of Barkley Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is a magnificent landscape of rocky cliffs fronting onto the wild Pacific Ocean, sheltered beaches and bays, lakes, mountains and forests. Since the beginning of time, it has been the ancestral home of the Huu-ay-aht First Nation. For thousands of years, the Huu-ay-aht lived on the land and sea according to age-old traditions and practices, changing and adapting when natural and human-made events presented challenges. The arrival of outsiders, beginning with explorers such as Captain James Cook in 1778, forever changed their world. Drawing directly from oral history passed down by generations of Huu-ay-aht chiefs and elders, Kathryn Bridge tells the compelling stories of the Huu-ay-aht people from their perspective. From creation tales and accounts of their traditional ways of doing things to alliances and conflicts with neighbouring tribes, this is a fascinating glimpse into the complex and rich history of a West Coast First Nation.

It is December 1944 and Europe is still gripped by war. In the densely forested mountains of Belgium one of the conflict's most brutal battles is raging. Cut off from the front, a ragtag group of young British and American soldiers finds itself being hunted by a patrol of elite German Special Forces, including a newly commissioned officer called Kreuz—a teenage boy who will grow up to become Warden Cross (the fearsome prison director who will one day rule Furnace Penitentiary, the terrifying underground prison specially built for teen offenders). As both sides fight for their lives in the unforgiving terrain, however, they start to realize that there are worse things hiding in the snow than soldiers. There are creatures out there with gas masks and piggy eyes (ancestors of Furnace prison's "wheezers")—demonic entities that cannot be killed by guns and grenades, monsters who do not care what uniforms their victims are wearing so long as they bleed, and so long as they scream . . . At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
